One Regulation Softball and Exercise

My personal trainer extraordinaire, Will of WillFit gave me some advice awhile back on how to reset yourself after a vigorous workout. He said stretch yourself out, Use the foam roller on your legs and get 2 regulation softballs to use on your back. Recovery is the key to everything in training. As a person…

Meditation as a lifestyle

Every morning before I get out of bed to feed my cat I take a few minutes to myself to meditate and get my mind together for the daily routine. I start my mediation the same way every time. I state at the white ceiling and then start breathing deliberately slower that I usually breath….

Buying Running Shoes

It is that time of year for me to go out and buy new running shoes. I went running in the Park and I came home with my feet hurting on the outside. The last time my feet did that I used my running shoes for too long and then they ran down in the…

Respect yourself

As I run through the Park each morning I have been shocked to find myself comparing myself to other runners. I see the really young runner, the twenty some thing runner, the older runner, and dare I say it the larger runner.  There are as many type of runners as there are colors in a…

Eating too much

Once a week or so I eat more than I do on a daily basis. Most people call it the “Cheat Day.” I call it, “a Free day.” It is a day when I feel free and I eat less restrictive than I usually do. On my cheat day, I have one regular meal during…

Weight loss – Rebooted!

Originally, I lost 145 lbs. in 2011. I keep looking back at my self in 2010 and I wonder how I can keep from returning to where I was. I say to myself occasionally, “I don’t know who that chic was but she is not invited back.” Yes, it sounds rude, but I really did…

Boston Marathon

Today about 2:50pm EDT a bomb went off at the finish line of the Boston Marathon. I was checking out the posted times for the Runners that I knew. Suddenly, I saw the first post of the bombing and I asked my friends in Boston, “Is this for real?” I could not believe that someone…

Crisis Averted

I just had a very good Interview with a former Colleague. I am trying to decided if I go back to my former company or if I will move on. Monetarily I need to stay the course and get this position. My heart is in a weird place. I want a new life but I…

YOLO

I woke up this morning and turned on the news, which was not usual for me. I’m one who like to listen to “the Couch” because of the lack of sensationalism and very few depressing news stories. Yes, I take the lighter path in the morning before my morning coffee. You only live once. I…

Friends

Today I feel alone as I have reached out to people who I felt were acquaintances or friends and I realize that they are silent. I guess I am feeling the effects of my separation from my job. I had a great Job and  fantastic boss, but the Company needed to loose a few people….
